Testimonials

  • Olivia really enjoyed the course and has been truly inspired with photography! From the first part of the course that I sat in on it was so interesting to learn how a camera actually works. And the results were fabulous too – please thank Harriet for sending those through so promptly, Olivia was very proud of them. It was so nice to spend time with people for whom nothing was too much trouble – very refreshing and really valued.
